I've seen more dumb subjects wasted as 'threads'

and yes, I did google it and 'ask jeeves' it. The folk over here seem to be more quick on the draw...

That's what kvrdave's wife said.

And ironically, he finished his reply within 4 minutes of this thread starting.

That's not the kind of June bug I have had hit me in the face before.

These are the insects I am used to calling June Bugs. They are about the stupidest bugs alive.

They are much prettier around these parts.



Actually, that one isn't so pretty. But most are bright green and have incredible iridescents.

Yep. That's what they look like here in Southern California. Pretty green color when they're flying. When they're flying, they look a lot like bumble bees, except bumble bees are black.

Years ago, I was over at my grandmother's house and there were hundreds of these things all over the fruit on her peach tree.

In OK they look like the brown version posted above and during the summer at night they swarm around lights and are nasty....get in your hair...it's gross. Plus they crawl all over parking lots and sidewalks and you have to walk over them and they make a digusting crunch.
